Gallery and Events

The University Art Gallery

The University Art Gallery is an exhibition space for UAF Art students, faculty, staff and visiting artists. The gallery hosts MFA and BFA thesis exhibitions of graduating students.

Each year the Department of Art hosts two large group exhibitions of student artwork.

The Annual Art Student Invitational Exhibition is held at the end of each Fall semester. Students registered during the Fall semester are invited to exhibit up to three pieces that were completed during that semester.

The Annual UAF Juried Student Art Exhibition is held at the end of each Spring semester. This show is open to all disciplines and to all registered art students during that academic year. All work submitted should have been completed in that academic year. Each year the Art Department faculty select a guest juror for the exhibition.
